For a sixpence,
I would reconpence;
For a shilling,
I would try.

For a two bobs coin,
I would understand;
For a dollar,
I would cry.

For ten dollars,
I would not let go;
For a hundred,
I would die.

For a thousand dollars,
I would not yet know;
All the things that I could buy,
For a million dollar.

I would give it all away,
To live and not to die;
For any amount of money,
I would live and never die.
